What is the right sauce?

When someone thinks about eating a salad, it tends to be the image of a dry and unappetising bowl of vegetables but the right sauce can actually elevate it! Salad dressings are quite simple to create at home, and figuring out how to make your favourite dressing in your own home is a very beneficial skill to have. It will save you a lot of money.

You also have total power over the ingredients. Have you ever gone down the salad dressing section and read the list of ingredients? There are a few healthier choices available, but most of those of them are loaded with artificial colours and flavours, as well as more sugar and salt than is required. What you need to remember is that dressings should not be too heavy and should be bright, bringing the fresh flavour of vegetables forward.

Some of them include cilantro lime, balsamic vinegar, honey mustard and so much more.
